    I just installed it on my brother's Road King and he loves it. Took us about 5 hours start to finish.
    Cool. Thanks.

    when i did my install Dave (pergrine) was there to over see that it went well . mine and (Brad Smith) were being done at the same time and at the same place . there were a few small items that made it take a tad longer then what it could have been done in , such as waiting for a tool (there was 1 incorrectly placed wire on one of the bikes that requried a bit of a back tracking . but even with those items it was maybe 5 hours of actual work time . if you have never removed the air intake on one of these bikes ( this was the first time i had done it ) its about an hour just to tear it down to that point and put itall back together .
    and as far as how is it still working . i just got back from taking a 1000 mile ride around the lake and i used it often on the trip and i still love it

    and as someone had asked about a safety override , if all else fails you can always hit the kill switch . the unit is designed to disabled by taping either brake , or the clutch ( as mentioned before just like a car ) and of course the power button on the unit itself .

    Definitely glad I did this modification. Much better than a throttle lock and when you do long trips, worth it.
    Works great still and safer than a throttle lock, either brake, clutch or kill switch.

    Peregrine's instructions are very detailed and are enough to do the job.

    Great! So This is the 3rd CC unit I have installed on a bike, and the first Electronic one. The Vacuum units are smoother. Having said that, the electronic is the way to go for a Connie IMHO. Issues: With Protector over control pad, its a little difficult to engage and It "Surges" at slow speed. It also engages abruptly too. But once set at highway speed. IT'S AWESOME! I would install again.for sure.

    I wonder how hard it would be to adapt this for use on a C109R.

    What Bary meant is that it is basically the same install time on a C, and possible easier because he put the Rostra unit where the tool box is, rather than (on the M) under the battery box, which adds extra time.

    the first time I met Dave "pregrine" was at th MAM in 2013 . I was asking a question or two about how it felt when it would set etc . His reply was the " the keys are in it , go try it "
    as soon as I got home from that MAM I was buying the needed parts to do this . Some of his pics with all those super long length of wires does make it look more intimidating then what it really is . But I have to give him some credit although I was looking across at other bike forums that were doing CC . Dave got it figured out on the how to for the 9

    Just another endorsement for this cruise control unit. I couldn't have done it without Peregine's original work. Kudos to him.

    It worked flawlessly the first time - holds a set speed on the level, and up hills. The bike is a pleasure to drive on the highway now. This should be a factory fit to every 109.

    No adjustments required after installing. Peregrine's switch settings obtained from Rostra are perfect.

    I made a bracket to mount the cc switch to the mirror mount.

    I mounted the control unit on the side of the battery box, after trimming off the lower 2/3rds of the portion that holds the toolkit. The round thing to the bottom of the control unit is a cigar lighter socket used to power up a wideband I intend to use when I tune the ECU.

    I made a few changes to the wiring in order to simplify things.

    Photos and wiring diagram are attached.

    Nice 1 Bill. Just a word of advice...the relays next to the cc unit are upside down-any moisture that gets in there will get straight into them. If you have room and length on the cables, its better that the terminals face downwards man.
    Just trying to help.

    Thank you. The relay mounting position is deliberate. If pointing down, they interfere with the side cover attachment. I did consider the downside, however I cannot see how rain or road splash could enter that area. Even the stock wiring connectors in the vicinity are not sealed connections.

    No problem. Post a photo of where and how you mounted your relays. I might learn something and redesign my system.

    Here is a link to the mounted control unit on my M109. 1R made for each of us...the control unit tucks into the indent at the bottom right of the left control box. Almost looks stock.

    Also, would recommend the use of micro-relays rather than the standard relays you buy at an autoparts store. About 1/3 the size.
    But a pack of 5 GM relays from AliExpress for under 20 bucks.

    Thanks. I did look at smaller relays, however I couldn't find any with a mounting tab.

    Do you have a photo and a link to the relays you used on your installation?

    I didnt use a mount, wires crimped to connectors and shrink tube right up and over connector.

    Ali Express, if you add the item to your watch list and wait a few days, you will get a message that 'the item you are watching is available at a lower price'

    Thanks. I prefer a fixed mount. I'll stick with what I've installed.

    I also did my brothers 02' Road King with this same unit. The hard part is the pulse per minute setting on the box. Once you got that the rest is cake. The only intimidating part is physically running the wires. I left them long until I made sure it tested as working.

    Anyone can do this.

    My 13' Victory uses the same unit from the factory

    I noticed that you listed a different cruise control module. Is this a typo or does it matter which one I use.
    Thanks, just want clarification before purchasing parts.

    Well how's it going? I take it your going to keep the 9 for awhile?

    Any thoughts on the meet posted in MC events posted for Vegas, trying to find a time of year for it and a list of those wanting to meet. Don't have to have the 9, could rent or just hang out! Feel free to pipe in on the thread.
